The difference

About Dementia in Australia

Dementia Australia represents the estimated 487,500 Australians living with dementia and the almost 1.6 million Australians involved in their care. It’s a huge undertaking, and there are a lot of misconceptions about dementia, and its prevalence. There currently is no cure.
